Bradford winger Tyrell Robinson sacked by club after child sex offence charges

League Two side Bradford City have sacked their player Tyrell Robinson after the police charged him with child sex offences.

The 22-year-old winger, from South Ockendon, Essex, has been charged with engaging with sexual activity with a child in August 2018, and has also been charged with one count of making an indecent image of a child and two counts of distributing an indecent image of a child.

He is due to appear before Bradford magistrates on April 7.

In a statement, the club said: "Bradford City Football Club has parted company with Tyrell Robinson. This comes after West Yorkshire Police confirmed charges had been brought against Robinson, following his arrest in August 2018.

"Robinson has been dismissed from the remainder of his contract on grounds of committing gross misconduct. The club will be making no further comment on the matter."

Robinson came through Arsenal's youth academy, but after turning professional in January 2015 he was released by the Gunners in February 2017, and although he had a trial at Watford the Hornets chose not to offer him a contract.
